When you’re attending a Songkran celebration, it’s a given that you will end up drenched in water. For the UChat Songkran Day-Out festivalgoers at Setia City, Shah Alam, last weekend, whether they had a water gun in hand or not, they were soaked to the bone – all thanks to the downpour in the evening of both days of the festival.
The rain did not stop the fun, however. We didn’t get to join the festivities on the first day but we were informed that the rain stopped just in time for the concert in the evening. The rain on the second day wasn’t so forgiving, though, as we witnessed first-hand.

YouTuber turned professional singer Priscilla Abby opened the show with three songs including “Burn” and “I Love the Sky”, before singer-actress Elizabeth Tan a.k.a. Lizzy took the stage with three songs as well.

Up next was German-Thai singer Jannine “Ploychompoo” Weigel. The singer cheerfully greeted her Malaysian fans in English. In between her songs, she would take the time to talk to everyone and thank them for being there despite the rain. The singer performed five songs in total: “Diamonds”, “Heart Stop”, “Words”, “Pak Rai Jai Rak” and a cover of Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings”.

After melting fans’ hearts further with her aegyo while performing “Pit A Pat” and then setting them on fire with her sultry moves in “Roller Coaster” and “Why Don’t You Know”, the singer wrapped up her stage with a cover of Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj’s “Bang Bang”.
